Dutchessa the G2 Royal Heroine upsetter

POST TIME 6:05 PM EDT--This year's edition of the G2 Royal Heroine features a full and very contentious field of 10 fillies and mares.  Pace projects to be moderate and, without question, #9 Kathleen Rose will be leading the field at every call and into the stretch.  Given the modest pace scenerio, it will be no surprise to see #9 Kathleen Rose hang on for a spot in the Superfecta.  This is one tough filly that is getting good at the right time and she may be ignored at the windows a bit.  My top selection for the win spot in here is the French import, #8 Dutchessa.  Another strong value play that is coming off a very sharp effort in that 7 furlong win against an open gender field at Longchamp back in late April.  The layoff is no concern as we have seen time again, it is the preferred pattern for Euro shippers (and particularly French shippers) over the years.  #7 Habibi is an interesting Kiwi mare.  Prior to an injury suffered in the Group 1 Australian Oaks, this mare could do no wrong winning 6 times from 8 starts.  She is successful at any distance and on both firm and soft going.  Has been away from racing for over a year but has been training steadily at Santa Anita since early April.  Did catch a bit of a cough which delayed her US debut, but if she is right today, she'll be a tough foe against this field.  Going back to the US contigent, #6 Moone's My Name and #10 Parranda figure on paper to be right there in the mix at the finish line.  #3 Wishing Gate and #5 Moulin De Mougin will run better than their odds would indicate.  With Joe Talamo in the irons, #1 Stormy Lucy is going to take a lot of play but this mare clearly does her best running at longer distances.

The Wager:

$.50 Superfecta 8 with 3,5,6,7,9,10 with ALL with ALL 

$1 Trifecta 3,5,6,7,8,9,10 with ALL with 6,10

That was my mistake, Tony, and it has been corrected. Because so many other tracks offer the $.50 Trifecta wager, I had forgotten for a moment that Santa Anita does not.
I would like to know why Xpressbet won't allow a $0.50 Tri-bet at Santa Anita? Do they allow them with your sponsors? If so, that's an excellent reason to get a new book.
